Average weather temperatures in Vieques, Puerto Rico

Vieques Weather

The average temperature in Isla de Vieques, Puerto Rico is around the 80’s all year round and the record low is 40 degrees F. On the interior / mountain side of the island the temperature drops a little in the evening but just by a difference of 3-5 degrees F. A cold front from the north called a norte only drops the temperature to the 60’s F.

So, whether you choose to stay at a nice mountain side inn, you will have very comfortable tropical whether. Even on a hot day in the summer months, it won’t feel sticky hot since there is a constant breeze that will cool you off.

Rainy Months in Vieques, Puerto Rico

The months of May, October and November are usually the months with more rain, however they are usually showers that last a few hours or less and you can still get to the beach. Some showers last a few minutes.

Here’s an old wife’s tale in Puerto Rico:  If you happen to be in Puerto Rico during the FIRST rain in May, get out and get soaked.  Supposedly the first water in May keeps you looking younger. 

Hurricane Season Vieques, Puerto Rico

Officially the hurricane season in Vieques and Puerto Rico begins on June 10th and officially ends on November 30th. However, most the hurricanes come around from August to November.

We get asked if tourists should risk going to Vieques on hurricane season, I say you are basically taking a gamble.   In September 20th, 2017, Vieques, Culebra and Puerto Rico were hit by Hurricane Maria causing mayor devastation to the electrical grid, destroying homes and many businesses.  Previous to Hurricane Maria was Hurricane George on September of 1998 which caused around 2 million dollars in damages.  

A lot of travelers have gone to Vieques and Puerto Rico have been lucky with no problems during hurricane season.   We highly recommend you purchase trip insurance to protect your funds invested in a vacation just in case a natural disaster strikes.  

Some accommodations in Vieques will close during the months of September and October for hurricane protection reasons and maintenance.   

One great question to ask the management of the Vieques hotel or vacation rentals is whether they have a water reservoir and back up electricity generator for emergencies. If you happen to be on the island during a hurricane you will be glad you asked these questions before booking.
